Poetry of Kansas

Album Verse To Lilly.

You are the Lilly of the valley,
    The Solomon I mean;
But not the lovely rose of Sharon,
    That orient garden queen:
Though you're full sweet and pure and lovely
    To bloom in that blest spot,
Stern fate decrees that on these prairies
    You cast your humble lot.

__W. L. Robeson, Hill City.
